Ok i have a 1989 240sx 2.4l will ka24e sohc. It has a blown/or crackd cylinder head and i was wanting to know if a 1986-1989 Nissan Z24 2.4 sohc or the 83-89 nissan 2.4 sohc pickup cylinder head would fit on my 240sx. There is a difference in thos two or atleast they look different from eachother so im not for shur. A freind of mine has a nissan/datsun pickup and if they would fit i would ask him and find out if thats the same engine that is in his truck.
If anyone knows if this would work i would like to know thanks.

Z24 motor was produced 1983-1989 and was carbureted. A fuel injected version was produced in 85 Z24i. Even then, the fuel injection was done at the Throttle body not the head. Was found in all of the above vehicles. He wants to take the top half of the Z24 motor (the head) and put it on the bottom half of a KA24e Motor (the Block). Sorry man... The hardbodies didnt get the KA till 90ish...

Why it won't fit...

Or atleast wont be cost effective to use...

KA


Z24


12V is better than 8V. plus the fluid ports dont match. Head studs might match but not sure of the fitment or size of the heads.

KA intake side

Z24 intake side


As you can see... the intake manifolds aren't the same. So unless you are thinking of retro fitting EFI onto the Z24 head, you are gonna have to stay carberated. Good luck passing emissions if it does happen to fit. You can see on the KA there are little groove above the intake ports to clear injectors. None present on the z24 because fuel and air was all mixed in the carberator or throttle body on the z24i...
